As a happy young girl drifts off to sleep, she whispers into the darkness: “Angels, angels all around, angels, angels come surround, hold my hand throughout the night, guide me from the dark to light.” Each night a beautiful guardian angel appears at her bedside, and together they embark on a magical journey through the girl’s dreams.

Written by H. Elizabeth Collins and illustrated by Judy Kuusisto, this warm-hearted story is perfect for comforting bedtime fears. To Sleep with the Angels helps children fall asleep, knowing that guardian angels will keep loving watch over them throughout the night. Even very young children will be comforted and empowered by knowing that “in the darkness there is light.” All you need to do is close your eyes and fly.

To Sleep with the Angels was a finalist for the Coalition of Visionary Resources’ Award for Best Children’s Book.
